Question about Compaq Presario SR1030NX (DW256A#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Network card is dead

I believe that my Presario has an integrated network card. I also believe that it may have taken a hit in a recent electrical storm. It stopped working but everything else seems to work. I've put a USB wireless device on it to get access to my network. I cannot disable the other card through control panel/system/hardware/device manager. It just goes into perptual busy state. Now I cannot install upgraded Norton Antivirus. It gets hung up on installing network drivers. I suspect it's hung up trying to get at the same network port. Is there any way I can hardware disable the network part of the multifunction card?

I want to remove physically a network card in my pc GX270 but i dont know which one is network card


Hi,
For newer systems, network cards are "integrated" in the motherboard. If you are sure that you have a seperate PCI network card device, It should look exactly like this. Check the locks before pulling them out. Make sure that the pc is off and no flea power. Touch the metal sides of the CPU casing as this discharges any static electricity which is harmful for any electronic device.
Hope this helps.

Compaq Presario 5220 Desktop Windows 98 internet: Dial-up Can a DSL card be installed or would I need to go with a wireless USB? And would wireless USB work on Win98?


You can install a network card inside the computer. You will need a PCI or an ISA card. (I know PCI network cards are easy to find at most of the computer shops.) See this site for how to install a card: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=bph07111&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=93139 . However you should open your computer and check the space between the devices in the slots in the computer. There is an AGP slot with a video graphics card, 1 PCI/ISA slot with a modem (default specs), one free ISA slot and one free PCI slot. However depending on the graphics card one of these slots may be blocked by the card. You'll either need to get a card that fits the available slot or remove the modem and use that slot.

Here are some PCI 10/100 network cards: http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=587&name=10-100%20Ethernet%20PCI/ISA . Most of these are compatible with Win98. I'm not sure if there are any gigabit NIC with Win98 drivers.

Wired and wireless USB NIC adapters exist. However, you will be limited to the USB speed. If you have USB 1.1, that will be really slow. Most likely your computer will require a reboot anytime the connection is lost.

I hope this helps.

I want to know if it has a wireless card


Probably not. Here is the website for that computer's spec sheet.

http://reviews.cnet.com/desktops/hp-compaq-presario-sr1120nx/1707-3118_7-30969217.html

Under specs it says:
Networking Network adapter - Integrated
That means it's hard wire connection to internet.

The network card (also the sound and video) is integrated onto the motherboard on this computer. You probably just need to install the drivers. You can download the drivers from Dell here. Also make sure the onboard network hardware is enabled in the computer's BIOS setup. (If you didn't use a restore set from the manufacturer and just install Windows, you almost always need to install the drivers for integrated hardware.)

Ethernet controller


Hello,

More than likely this is the one that you need. It is for a Broadcom NIC. If that one doesn't work, they have this one for a Gigabit NIC listed here. I would start withe the integrated NIC divers. Both files have download instructions on the page if you need it.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Thanks

Go back to Acer.com. The driver you want is the one that say's (Power 1000 chipset driver) that is if it's an integrated Network card. If it's not integrated then I would need the name on the card. Hope this helps.

House hit by lightning - Ethernet not connecting to router


Most likley the network card is bad. Check if you get any lights on the network card. If there are no lights get a PCI network card for the system. If you get the link lights it could be just corruption on the system. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers.

Try going into the BIOS when the computer starts up (F12 at the Dell Screen I think) and disable the onboard ethernet and see if that helps.
